RCOG statement on the birth of the Royal baby

News 5 May 2015

Dr David Richmond, President of the RCOG, has welcomed the announcement that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have had a second child, a baby girl named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, who was born on Saturday 2 May 2015.

He says: “The RCOG is delighted about this excellent news. We send our very best wishes to the happy couple and hope that both mother and baby are doing well.

“While it is totally understandable that there is so much national and international interest in the birth of a Royal baby, as there was when Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s first child, Prince George, was born in 2013, we hope that the couple are given the privacy they need to bring up their two children.”
